For the literati out there, it is, of course, Edgar Allen Poe’s birthday.

You can read about him here:

TOTD actually won a school prize once upon a time and given a copy of Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination, have loved ‘The Pit and the Pendulum’ and ‘A Cask of Amontillado’ ever since.

Poe is credited with one of the first detectives of fiction, C. Auguste Dupin, and is even known for some science fiction.  There’s a short essay about it here:

And if all that’s not enough there’s a webliography to explore here:
